Spend a day beach-hopping with us.

Take in any number of watersports activities, from kayaking to stand up paddleboarding, or opt to sit back and relax along the shore.

Black-Sand Beaches: If you enjoy convivial summer days spent near beach bars and delicious seafood restaurants, we’ll point you to the black-sand shores of Kamari, Perissa, or Perivolos, all located on the south coast of Santorini. These popular areas offer plenty of options for watersports lovers, too, from windsurfing and water skiing to kayaking and paddle boarding. If you’re looking for a little less noise, nearby is family-friendly Monolithos Beach, and in the northern bounds of the island near Oia, you’ll find Baxedes Beach, a remote shoreline for a tranquil and relaxing beach day.
Red-Sand Beaches: Arguably the most beautiful shoreline in the Aegean, the red beach near the village of Akrotiri lives up to the hype. Not only do soaring sunkissed cliffs tower above its terracotta sands, but the water here is also impossibly clear, making it the ultimate beach-day destination. Plus, its isolated location keeps crowds relatively at bay.
White-Sand Beaches: Accessible by water taxi and set within walking distance from the red beach of Akrotiri is Aspri Ammos, a stunning white-sand beach set below multicolored cliffs that ombre from coral to cream. Hire a beach lounger for the day to enjoy this stretch of grey sand, which we love for its shores speckled in iridescent white pebbles. Continue further to the east of Aspri Ammos to Vlychada, a lunar-like landscape home to impressive white volcanic rock walls.
